Two actors, two pianos and many, many characters grace the stage as fifteen years of learning the art of piano playing unfolds. The pianists work fervently towards their dream amidst pushy parents, eccentric teachers, hours of repetitive practice, stage fright, the agony of competitions and the dream of greatness. Along the journey the actors exhibit a dazzling range of piano wizardry encompassing the Three Bs - Bach, Beethoven and Billy (Joel). 2 Pianos 4 Hands enjoyed enormously successful runs in New York, Washington, Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia. The New Haven Register calls the show a "bellyful of laughs," and the Los Angeles Times says it "resonates with anyone who's ever had a dream."
